Good hostel, average facilities but noce staff. Not many interaction between guests.


Great place with nice staff. Free breakfast and soup every day.


This hostel sucks! Don't be fooled by the "flashpackers" title. There's nothing flash about this place. The place is old and dirty, looks like a run down motel from an American Horror film. The lounge is like an old persons living room. No suitable cooking equipment, pans all stick, fridges are dirty. The rooms are cramped, no lock on the bathroom door! The sink is tiny, the size of my foot (size 10). Wouldn't stay here again.


Free soup and European pastries? Unbelievable and tasty. Spent an absurd amount of time signing into the ridiculous wifi. Motel-ish but warm and pretty clean. Pretty good music. Awkward bathrooms in rooms. Friendly woofers. Impressive VHS selection could be sold for 11 dollars to improve wifi system.


I loved this hostel, met some lovely people here. The fire was warm and cosy when I had to spend an extra day stuck in Franz Josef due to torrential rain! The room was warm and well kitted out, it was really handy to have a mini fridge, microwave and toaster in the room. The staff were really friendly and helpful, everyone here was chilled out! Our ensuite bathroom flooded everytime we showered but that just added to the fun! Free wifi, soup, breakfast and international calls, which was perfect


We loved this hostel. Very friendly staff...thank you Karin...and great facility. Free breakfast Ithe a.m. and free broth in the evening plus free hot chocolate, popcorn and international phone calls. We had our own room which included tea, sugar, kitchenette and a private bathroom. Plus they serviced the room while we were trekking the glacier. Loved it! Highly recommend.
